David Power, Mal­colm Proud

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS - MD

Church of the As­sump­tion, Tul­lam­ore 8pm ¤10 Uil­leann piper David Power and harp­si­chordist and or­gan­ist Mal­colm Proud have be­come a mu­si­cal item. Their col­lab­o­ra­tions cross the di­vide be­tween clas­si­cal and tra­di­tional, with the pipes even ven­tur­ing into Mozart and Kevin Volans’s ar­range­ment of the South African childen’s song Umzi wat­sha (The House is

Burn­ing). Power and Proud will be per­form­ing at St Michael’s Church, Dún Laoghaire on Sun­day, Au­gust 6th, and at St Can­ice’s Cathe­dral dur­ing Kilkenny Arts Fes­ti­val on Au­gust 19th. But they can be heard be­fore then in the Church of the As­sump­tion in Tul­lam­ore. The church was de­stroyed by fire in 1983, re­built in 1986, and its 1965 Frobe­nius or­gan came as a gen­er­ous gift from the Vor Frue Kirke in Copen­hagen (the Dan­ish cap­i­tal’s Evan­gel­i­calLutheran cathe­dral) when that church ac­quired a new or­gan. It was in­stalled in Tul­lam­ore in 1995.
